Capital Dock, Dublin Docklands
This place is AMAZING! They have an extensive food menu included a really great selection of vegan options that are innovative and delicious, from pizza with vegan cheese to the 'Hail Seiten' burger which is a vegan version of a southern fried chicken burger *drool*...
If you're into craft beer this place is for you, it's also a microbrewery.. but if you're not that's cool too they have anything else you could ask for!
43 South William Street, Dublin
Our Christmas Eve tradition! The best place in Dublin for a delicious Brunch or a special occasion breakfast. Myself and Keith wake up super early every Christmas Eve to get breakfast here before doing some last minute shopping in the city. The wonderful staff here deserve a special mention for always being so warm, welcoming and accomodating to my allergies.
The Market Bar
Fade Street, Dublin
The perfect place for a romantic date or a girls night out. This place has the most amazing atmosphere for any casual occasion located at the back of Georges St. Arcade the whole place is a re-designed Market with beautiful wooden benches and a dark and ambient bar upsatirs. The food menu is always delicious with something for everyone it is technically a tapas restaurant but during the day they serve soups and sandwiches etc. The menu can be limited for a Dairy -free diet but the atmosphere makes up for it and there's always a deal or two!
Wellington Quay, Temple Bar, Dublin
As far as I'm concerned, this is the best Japanese food in Dublin. This tiny little gem on the edge of Temple bar is run by a Japanese family and has amazing deals and set menus as well as an extensive menu of sushi, gyoza and teppaniaki. Literally DROOL worthy.
Bewley's Oriental Cafe
Grafton Street, Dublin
Bewley's is a staple in Dublin Culture. Closed an reopened so many times over the years. The Bewley's Cafe of Grafton St. is the last remaining Bewley's cafe. Despite this Cafe being a little pricey and doesn't have a fantastic selection for special diets, the cosy atmosphere surrounding by fireplaces and delightful table service makes it a wonderful experience. Perfect spot for Tea and Cake or a sandwich and some Tayto.
